Finland’s perhaps best-known metal act, Children Of Bodom, will be playing their final show with their current line-up this coming December. ‘A Chapter Called Children Of Bodom’ will take place at the Black Box in Helsinki Ice Hall on December 15th. Below is a statement from the band:

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce that 2019 will be the last for Children Of Bodom with this line-up.

After almost 25 years with Bodom, thousands of shows and 10 albums, it is time for HenkkaJanne and Jaska to step back and change direction within their lives. All three will miss the fans and supporters in every city in every country the band ever played.  

The last show of this line-up will be on the 15th of December at Helsinki Ice Hall. Tickets still remain for some of the Finnish shows in December.

Alexi and Daniel will have further announcements about their plans to keep creating new music in the future.

Thanks again for everything – Children Of Bodom
